joining us. have a great night. >> good evening thank you for being with us president obama and italy's policies are no more coherent united to and a half years ago when he insisted on an mubarak departure from power there clear lack of policy led to his overthrow the muslim brotherhood ascension to power in now and the secular military removal of the egyptian military removal of mohammad morsi and now the deadly clash between security forces and morsi supporters. the white house again today refused to make knowledge whether they will continue to send a to the egyptian government and military that has reportedly killed hundreds of morsi demonstrators since last week but those questions that play in the muslim brotherhood for the torching , looting and destruction with those churches and josh ernest told the white house press corps today that a decision on aid to egypt has been set aside to contrast the white house position at two years ago when mubarak was in power president obama himself for in the end to cut off a billion and a half dollars of aid if his government did not

. this is going on at the same time with the u.s. credibility at stake. your colleagues are calling for the u.s. aid to egypt be pulled. it passes through the suez canal. also so many things hang in the balance for the region because for the u.s. that has been our regional ally for an arab state. does the u.s. have any real leverage here with the money, the 1.6 billion in aid? or if we take it away does it mean that someone else is going to come in, a foreign entity to fill that financial void. >> that is an important point, thomas. we have already given most of that aid, the $1.3 billion, only about 500 million that has yet to be given during this fiscal year. we have delayed the delivery of f-16 planes and withheld the apache helicopter. they are very interested in getting the military equipment from us and ironically, that money goes to u.s. defense contractors. i think this issue is much bigger than withholding aid. this is a relationship that has been developed over decades with mu bar ark who was a dictator as well. you're absolutely correct when you say that this is a pivotal relationshi

military closely aligned with the u.s. government, but they're not listening, they're not sort of honoring that alliance. >> right. >> what leverage does it give the u.s. to take the step you're advocating this morning? >> well, i think at this point, they're obviously getting the impression that no matter what they do, our aid will continue, so we do need to exercise our influence by saying we're going to follow the law, particularly in light of your recent violent crackdowns, suspend aid until you restore democracy, until you move to an inclusive process for elections, and obviously, a new constitution that allows all people to have a say in it, to respect people's rights. i think that's what we have to do at this point. we've tried to go down a road to get them to do the right thing. they're not doing that. and also, i would say this, david. the best way to marginalize the muslim brotherhood is in the ballot box, not through arrests and killing people. in fact, you're just going to encourage them to martyrdom, rather than just defeating them at the ballot box. they blew it when they wer

of civil war. gregg: can you tell us any more about these breaking news reports that hosni mubarak who has been jailed for a very long time will now be released? >> those reports come only from his hour. his hour says he will be released. whether that will happen is yet on seen. up would think the army wouldn't take such a bold move. it was two years ago hosni mubarak was deposed in the revolutionary coup that happened by the army. you wouldn't think the army is going to try and have mubarak released as the first they can they do in the week of the muslim brotherhood violence. egypt you could equate to a bonfire that just needs a match to be thrown on that gas-soaked firewood. martha: u.s. lawmakers once in support of continuing our $1.3 billion aid to egypt, some of them are changing their minds. here is the ranking member of the snalts foreign relations committee. >> i think the actions the last week will cause us to you spend aid. and it's a time to -- time to recalibrate and look at what else our national end. martha: 9:30 this morning we'll be our guest here in america's newsroom and

, gas prices go up for us. this is an absolute disaster in the making. >> suez in jeopardy, gas prices. is that a realistic possibility in this situation? >> reporter: well, there's no doubt that egypt is cornerstone of stability in the middle east. all of those things that senator li lindsey graham mentioned, could play out. the increasing lawless nns the northern part of sinai, these rising mill about the attacks are becoming more and more brazen and more and more deadly. that's giving egyptian officials major concern. if it spreads out to other parts of egypt it could threaten the stability of this country and the rest of this region. >>> all right, here at home, conditions out west are perfect for wildfires and that's not perfect at all when you think about what's going on there. 44 burning. none worst than the beaver creek fire. the first fires laid out 10,000 homes are in jeopardy and more than 1,000 firefighters are trying to get things under control as the flames threaten some tourist towns prompting widespread evacuations and bringing business to a halt. they're facing a trife

, but the north and south are still challenging us. >> thank you so much. our thoughts and prayers are with you in idaho. >> it was just two and a half years ago that there was a revolution to remove hosni mubarak from power. a criminal court today acquitted mubarak in a corruption case. last year he received a life sentence for not stopping the slaughter of protesters during the 2011 revolution, but that sentence was overturned on appeal and now he is being tried again under egyptian law, a defendant can only be held two years before a final verdict. mubarak's successor was, of course, mohamed morsi, who was democratically elected but the military overthrew him on july 3rd. morsi is also in custody and he's not going anywhere for now. prosecutors extended his detention for another 15 days to keep investigating him. egyptian soldiers were out in force once again. in the sinai peninsula, they killed 25. over the past week at least 900 people have been killed, both security forces and civilians. i want to bring in an activist who has spoken out against both the mubarak regime and the muslim broth

"the new york times" reports the administration is also considering delaying the delivery of a apache helicopters and repair kits for tanks and officials decided not to dlever f-16 fighter jets and cancel joint military exercises but the central debate is over the question of the 585 million dollars in military aid still scheduled to go to egypt this year. does the u.s. use that as leverage? a growing chorus of lawmakers is arguing it's time to pull the plug on aid to egypt. >> when we threaten something, as we did that we would cut off aid, the administration did and then not do it, then you lose your credibility and your influence. >> we are going to have to suspend our aid. >> i do not see how we can continue aid. >> i do believe we have to change our aid. >> i think the actions of the last week, no doubt cause us to suspend eight. >> it's counterproductive and shows nothing but american weakness to cont
